    Legendarily reticent perverse and misleading Prince is one of the few remaining 80s superstars who still perhaps remains unexplained. Now a firm fixture in the pop canon where such classics as "Purple Rain" "Sign o' the Times" and "Parade" regularly feature in Best Ever Album polls Prince is still as he ever was an enigma. His live performances are legendary (21 Nights at the O2 in 2007) and while recent releases have been modestly successful at best his influence on urban music and R'n'B in particular has never been more evident. The Minneapolis Sound can now be heard everywhere. Matt Thorne's "Prince" through years of research and interviews with ex-Revolution members such as Wendy and Lisa is an account of a pop maverick whose experiments with rock funk techno and jazz revolutionized pop. With reference to every song released and unreleased over 35 years of recording Prince will stand for years to come as the go-to book on the Great Man.
